Crying over spilled milk

Almost Two months of my breastfeeding journey I can honestly say this was the hardest part of it all. When I was told I had to have a c section in the hospital the first thing I told the nurses is I want to breastfeed. They told me they would help me as much as possible.
After bringing my son home from the hospital he would not latch. I began pumping and I did not make enough. I then had to supplement with formula. I was heartbroken. I felt like a failure. Though there is nothing wrong with formula feeding and I still give my son formula but it’s not the journey I thought I would have. I begin to pray over my pumps and continue to pump what I could. One Sunday I felt like I should try to get my son to latch again and he did surprisingly. My supply started to increase! With God nothing is impossible. He also cares about our heart’s desires. He is the provider!
